How to Travel Smarter This Holiday

December 17, 2014 4:24 am

Tensions are generally higher on roads and airways over the holidays, and with more Americans than ever planning to travel this season, it’s important to be prepared. To avoid frustration and headaches, Getaroom.com recommends the following tips.

1. Consider traveling on a holiday. Travel on Christmas Day is often much cheaper than in the days leading up to the holiday. If you have kids that want to spend Christmas morning with close relatives and Christmas evening with those further away, traveling on Christmas Day may be your best bet.

2. Save on car rentals. If your vacation is only four to five days in length, you might want to search for weekly rates on car rentals, rather than daily costs. Stay away from car seat or GPS rentals offered with the car, as well as supplemental insurance

3. Fly a smart route. Avoid layovers in areas where snowstorms are prone to happen. If you’re traveling from San Diego to Miami, for example, avoid layovers in Detroit, Chicago or Denver, where winter weather can wreak havoc. Select a route that flies through less unpredictable climates, such as Houston or Atlanta.

4. Get a ride to the airport. Airport parking rates tend to skyrocket over the holidays, so get a lift from a friend or use a recommended car service.

5. Account for extra time. Long lines at the airport can put you at risk of overbooking situations, so arrive well in advance of your departure time. If several flights are overbooked and you miss your original flight, airlines have limited obligations to assist you.
